Update 15.03.2022: New date for this years’ competition! Mobility/Medical goes Additive – The VDI Students Competition will take place on 1 – 3 July 2022 in Berlin.

The international student competition "Mobility I Medical goes Additive - The VDI Students Competition" is going into its 2nd round in 2022.

From 1 to 3 July 2022, the VDI - Verein Deutscher Ingenieure e.V. (Association of German Engineers) and Mobility I Medical goes Additive e.V. in Berlin will be organising this unique and interdisciplinary competition for young people around additive manufacturing and digital value creation for the second time. The competition is supported by partners such as Airbus, Altair, Autodesk, Deutsche Bahn and exoIQ.

Over the course of a weekend, each team of students is given a complex use case and product development task to solve using additive manufacturing and taking into account technical, economic and environmental factors. On the last day, a professional pitch and an evaluation by a top-class jury of experts and executives will take place. Registration for international and interdisciplinary student teams is now open. Further information, contact persons and impressions of the first event in 2020 can be found here: www.vdi.de/mga
